We feel lucky to have met both of these authors through conferences also. If you’ve ever read A. C. Gaughen’s creative books based on the tales of Robin Hood, you’ll know to get excited about her post on voice. Fun and fabulous Ame Dychman is sure to surprise with a post about anything from robots to tea parties!

She serves as the Director of Girls’ Leadership for Boston GLOW, a non-profit organization that creates opportunities to encourage and engage teen girls in the greater Boston area.
